Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Clint Eastwood (the Man with No Name) is good, Lee Van Cleef (Angel Eyes Sentenza) is bad, and Eli Wallach (Tuco Benedito Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez) is ugly in the final chapter of Sergio Leone's trilogy of spaghetti westerns (the first two were A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More). In this sweeping film, the characters form treacherous alliances in a ruthless quest for Confederate gold. Leone is sometimes underrated as a director, but the excellent resolution on this digital video disc should enhance appreciation of his considerable photographic talent and gorgeous widescreen compositions. Ennio Morricone's jokey score is justifiably famous. The digital video disc includes about a quarter-hour of footage not seen in the original release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Restoration! July 17 2004
Format:DVD
"The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is Sergio Leone's magnum opus. An audacious undertaking, it would have flopped miserably in any other director's hands. Only someone so commited to his artistic vision as Leone could have pulled off this bombastic pageantry of human nature in all its facets, its capacity for cynicism, greed, bloodlust, revenge, heroism, redemption and honour.
This movie must be *experienced.* Put the DVD in, turn the stereo all the way up and let it pummel you from the moment the Lardani titles blast onto the screen in a blaze of Technicolor fury. The montage of colour, interspersed by stark black and white visages of Eastwood, Van Cleef and Wallach is a tough act to follow, like Saul Bass' mesmerising titles for Hitchcock's "Vertigo."
The wait is now over! Last year, MGM/UA issued a restored 35mm print, which showed at the Film Forum in Manhattan. First restored in Italian by Cineteca Nazionale, the English-language restoration was spearheaded by Martin Scorsese, whose efforts with the Film Preservation Foundation have helped fund preservation of America's celluloid heritage. Both Eli Wallach and Clint Eastwood returned to the sound studio to dub new dialogue for approximately 20 minutes of restored footage. Both sound a little older and scratchier, but these added scenes help to explain both Tuco's and Angel Eyes' gangs and some plot points that were previously unclear. However, they both sound great! (Van Cleef's voice was dubbed by a professional voiceover artist, and sounds almost on target). The movie now has the true feel of a sprawling epic, one that's earned its right to take its time.

Format:Blu-ray
Saturday night. The kids were in bed and my wife went upstairs to read so I popped some corn and fired up my newly purchased Blu-ray of one of the greatest Westerns ever made. Started out ok. Nice detail in the close ups. But then something went wrong. The image was not very detailed in the medium and far shots. Eveything looked muddied out. No fine film grain either. I watched for about a hour and became more and more disappointed. It was painfully obvious on my 58 inch Sony TV that way too much digital noise reduction has been used on this transfer. What a shame. This is almost unwatchable on a large screen. I suspect that the film was processed down due to the long running time. Removing image detail equals less disc space. In order to cram the film and all the nice extras onto one Blu-ray MGM has sacrificed on image quality. This should have been a two disc set. Anyway, my copy will end up in a used bin at some point. I know the use of DNR is controversal. Some people don't care. But for me it's a show stopper.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good, Amazing, Perfect western. July 9 2004
Format:DVD
I am so ashamed for watching this movie for the first time just a few weeks ago. Just like another reviewer here mentioned- when I was a little kid, westerns never interested me, and growing up through my teenage years, it just seemed like a boring genre. After watching this film: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, I made sure to slap myself for thinking such a thing. Upon just one viewing of it (I'll refer to it as GBU to save space), it's now in my top 3 films of all time. I've never seen a movie combine so many elements together so perfectly. There are long shots that would normally be boring in any other movie, but it's part of the style here. But I'll leave all that up to you, since I could go on for hours (and I have) about how much I love this movie. But the big twist at the end, that never fails to give me a big stupid grin.
This is how it goes- Blondie [the good] and Tuco [the ugly] run a little partnership. Tuco is an outlaw wanted in just about every town, and Blondie turns him in for the reward. When Tuco's about to be hung, Blondie shoots the rope, and Tuco escapes on horseback. They repeat this, earning a lot of money in the process. But, for seemingly no reason, Blondie breaks their partnership and goes off on his own. Tuco seeks revenge, and hunts his once-partner down. Along the way, they both talk to a dying soldier (one at a time) and learn about a grave full of gold. Tuco knows which cemetary it's located in, but Blondie knows the name of the grave it's in. In turn, this causes them to join forces again, even if reluctantly, to get the gold and split it. But then, Angel Eyes [the bad] finds out about it as well, and joins in on the chase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best western ever made? July 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Forget about the over rated John Wayne, this is what the Western is all about...man's greedy nature unleased in a savage land! The italian actors are not always realistic,given the setting of the film, but the interplay between Eastwood and Wallach is astounding! Watching these two weather beaten character's leathery faces made me want to beg for a glass of cool water!
The film has many comedic touches and has a feel of Odysseus wandering in America, with gold is the object of the qwest. Fantastic setting and music, with relevant commentary about life that resonates even today. It will send chills down your spine.
